Interstellar part one – rage, rage against the dying of the light

I’m going to have to come back to this because I’m so pissed off. I put aside time to watch this without distraction and realised early on that I had been conned. It’s the future but we don’t get enough background to what happened and ZAP, ZAP, ZAP, between learning our protagonist was a pilot (the last pilot) and him agreeing to pilot the secret NASA spaceship conveniently 300 miles away from his dust-ridden front door.

Just about every movie cliché was rammed into this, father who does everything for his daughter, woman who ignores everything for her man, magic negro, evil person dressed in red, other woman who is clever but not clever enough to work everything out on her own, she almost gets it but not quite. Oh and filling in with male robots because the woman who wanted her man is not bright enough to help despite being the daughter of and also one of the last proper scientists on earth.

The only good thing that came out of this was that I bought it from Oxfam, who can have it back again with the sticker still attached.

What annoys me most of all is that in order to post about this properly, I’ll have to watch it again.
